Not as imagined

  • 3 of 5

The place was not quite as pictured. It is on the 3rd floor and the stairs are narrow and extremely steep, from the 2nd to the 3rd floor it felt like carrying luggage up a ladder. Room was small but neat and comfortable, nice bathroom. The street parking is a real pain. I got $80 in parking tickets in 20 minutes on checkout day.

Owner's Response: Thank You for taking the time to review! We very much appreciate as it helps us to continue to improve. We are very sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We go into great lengths to detail in our listings and explain to guests what our offerings include and include accurate pictures of the units. Good to always read details as well as reviews to get guests feedback. We are always available to answer questions you may have. I did want to point out a few things in your review that may be a little misleading for future guests. We explain stairs are required and also give square footage of the rooms. The pictures are 100% of the actual guest room, building and common areas, pictures of steps are included. They are up to code steps and not a ladder. We have a very European type of architecture here in Boston and this is a very typical building for Boston. There are hundreds of thousands of buildings of this type in in the city. Most all have steps. Few have elevators. The room has most all of the same furnishings included in the pictures. We are continually updating mattresses, chairs, fixtures, and bedding in guest rooms to keep clean, fresh and comfortable for guests. Some of that will continue to change to keep up dated. We do put in the listing, we DO NOT have private parking. It is FREE on the street and we give very specific instructions about parking. Parking is always available within a few blocks. That being said, You must read the signs and abide by the rules. Boston is a very popular city and like many cities parking is a premium. In hotels the cost can be $50 per night and up. Some parking spots in the city sell for $500,000. Fortunately we have an excellent location here where a car is not needed. Subway is 5 minutes away, 5 minute ride to the center. Uber and Lyft ride shares are also popular here. It is another great option for getting around. Boston is a unique city with a very European influence, for those with limited travel experience we may not be a perfect fit. We cater to those who would like to experience Boston's history and culture from a fresh, updated 1860's Inn. Thank You for Staying! Terry Fort Hill Inn, Boston

Clean, comfortable and met our needs

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a place to just sleep, this is perfect. The owner provides you with necessary amenities. We were on the third floor, so I would not recommend if you can’t do steps. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and cool. The location was great, close to the orange line. We walked to the ball field (nice summer day) and it was a little less than 2 miles. The owner was responsive and answered all my questions prior to booking and visiting.

Great Place To Stay. Boston Charm!

  • 4 of 5

This quaint apartment is full of Boston charm. Clean and comfortable. Great place to stay for a week. Close to Orange Line subway that gets you downtown quickly. Rent a car to travel to RI, NH and ME. Highly suggest. Boston is full of beauty and history. As well as surrounding area. Significant parking in neighborhood just keep eye on street cleaning signs and eat downtown as restaurants limited in the general area. Would definitely recommend.
